Par Equity founding partner, Paul Atkinson, has taken on the role as chair of Converge, the company creation programme for university students, graduates and staff. Paul Atkinson has held a seat on Converge’s strategic advisory board since 2016.
Atkinson stated: “I am delighted to chair the ‘crown jewel’ of Scottish academic entrepreneurial achievement. I’ve already witnessed the success of several Converge alumni and their potential to bring forward disruptive and transformative technologies that were worthy of investment. Importantly, I think we stand on the threshold of some remarkable breakthroughs where Scotland’s universities can again show how adept they are at unlocking their research potential and where Converge can be the springboard to help them achieve growth and success. I am looking forward to playing my part in chairing the board that provides Claudia and her team with the means to move Converge on to the next level.”
